To create an environment that promotes physical activity and healthy nutrition options in Sheboygan County.
Coalition was started in May 2003, as a result of receiving a Maternal and Child Health grant from the State of Wisconsin. The premise of the grant was to promote public health nutrition leadership, by forming nutrition coalitions that would focus on child obesity. As obesity is a multi-factorial problem, the coalition attempts to utilize the socio-ecological model to evoke behavior change in the areas of nutrition and physical activity among individuals, families and our greater Sheboygan County community.
We have a number of initiatives in the works, and would love to have you get involved in any way you would like!
Our mission is to create an environment that promotes physical activity and healthy nutrition options in Sheboygan County.
